>> if you wanted to find true love, this is it right here. so a 7-year-old, alex, from virginia was really missing his dad. he's been deployed in the navy for 99 days. so his mom wanted just to cheer him up. take a look at what happened. >> i don't know if you're ready to hear it. >> what? he's coming home? >> i don't know. what do you think? >> no. >> what do you think he has to tell you? >> i don't know. >> you don't know? if you can think of one surprise in the whole world, what would it be? >> i'm coming home. >> daddy's home.

and i'm not kidding. i had to go to the doctor and he said any repeated motion. he goes with the phone, i was like, oh, my god, that kills me. so i wonder if anyone else is getting tennis elbow from taking selfies. >> let other people take your picture. >> that's what i'm going to do. but i bet the young kids will have thumb problems and elbow problems. >> and social problems. >> anyway, joy to the world. all right. so oprah winfrey is doing something cool. she's auctioning off a lot of stuff from her closet on ebay. and so you can buy things. now, i heard a rumor that she wear as size 10 shoe and i wear a 9 1/2. and sometimes i wear a 10, too.

i'm really happy. >> i don't know how you can be in love with two women, but i am. >> still one to go? >> no, no, no. we need to marinate that for a secretary. what just happened? >> i'm living like kris hair ris so that says the show applauds him for living in the moment. but one of those girls is going to be devastated. >> first time i didn't like ben. first time ever. >> does he want america to hate him? >> and jo-jo is the one with the brothers. >> oh, i love the brothers. >> they will beat him up. >> did he say it again, is there a third person? >> here is the third girl. he did send her home. so she gets in the car. but what i liked about her, she's like wait a minute, i have some questions. and she got back out of the car and confronts him and says did you know this whole time. because this is the fantasy suite episode.
the fantasy suite. >> is that the end-end? >> and she cried her way home. so we're down to the two girls. >> i don't even like him anymore. >> when you hear him talk, he like puts her on a pedestal where he always talks about her saying she lets me be myself. >> he kissed her ring finger. isn't that what he did? >> please don't day metell me you're paying that close attention. >> suddenly because i don't like him now after he said i love you to two girls. >> have you ever been in love with two people at the same time? >> no i have not. >> is it possible? >> he sayses it's possible. >> i think there is lust at the same time, but i don't think there is love. >> i've been in lust with two people p. >> lust is okay. >> we have to get here because this is big from the bronx to vegas, baby. jennifer lowpez sits down with us

our characters really just work together really well. >> and what is cool about your characters, you understand -- she starts off kind of -- she wants to do good for her daughter and her life. but she starts tiptoeing into the dark side. >> it's a slippery slope. even when you have good sbepgs intentions you can make bad choices and you're like how did i get in this position. but i think what people know about harley already is that she's trying. >> yeah. >> always trying to do the right thing and sometimes we just don't. >> and with everything on your plate, when you found out this was picked up for a second season, which was reason to celebrate -- >> oh, yay. not true. i was very excited. because we worked so hard on it. we developed it for like 2 1/2 years. and we wanted it -- we knew it could be something special.
and when it comes together and that happens -- but, yes, i'm busy, but it's a good busy. you put the work in and you're like okay. >> look what happened. and one of the rare days that you don't have anything to do, what do you do? >> nothing. i'm very like sweats, you know, pajama top and the fuzzy socks with hearts on them. the bun and the no makeup. and i do like -- and everybody makes fun of me. >> i like the no makeup. love to see the human part. >> but that's what i do. i do nothing. my goal is like to be with the kids more. >> and your vegas residency is crazy. it's extended, as well. i went on the opening night. >> you were so much fun and my mom had so much fun with you. >> can we show her dancing one more time? your mom does not sit down. i was sitting near justin bieber

...besides arnie. xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding.
medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . . . . . . and a touch of sweetness
